With an exciting fifth week under our belts, here are the Lesters' Legends 2012 Week 6 fantasy football tight end rankings.

1. Tony Gonzalez, Atlanta Falcons

I’ll probably jinx him, but Gonzo is playing ridiculous football. He’s scored in four of five games and is averaging 77.6 ypg. Now he faces Oakland, which only makes the prospects brighter.

2. Vernon Davis, San Francisco 49ers 

Davis has four touchdowns as well and is averaging 60.6 ypg. He takes on the G-Men this week.

3. Rob Gronkowski, New England Patriots

He’s banged up, but it’s hard to count out the big guy against Seattle.

4. Jason Witten, Dallas Cowboys

Coming off the bye, the Cowboys would be wise to get Witten more involved, especially against a tough Baltimore team. He caught 13 passes for 112 yards and a score against the Bears in his last game.


5. Fred Davis, Washington Redskins

Davis is averaging 71.3 yards in his past three games. Next he faces Minnesota.

6. Owen Daniels, Houston Texans

Daniels has now scored in three straight games and is looking tough going into his battle with Green Bay.

7. Scott Chandler, Buffalo Bills

He has four catches in each of the past two games and four TDs in five games. Chandler's a good red zone option against Arizona.

8. Brent Celek, Philadelphia Eagles

Only had nine yards, but he scored last week. He’s averaging 64.8 ypg and will take on Detroit.

9. Heath Miller, Pittsburgh Steelers

He didn’t score for the first time last week, but had four catches for 41 yards. A good option against Tennessee.


10. Kyle Rudolph, Minnesota Vikings  

The yardage isn’t there, but he has four touchdowns in the past four games.

11. Brandon Pettigrew, Detroit Lions

Pettigrew caught 15 passes over the past two games for 128 yards. This week he takes on Philly.

12. Jermaine Gresham, Cincinnati Bengals

Averaging 57.0 yards the past three weeks and will play Cleveland.

13. Antonio Gates, San Diego Chargers 

He’s not playing like a TE1, averaging 35.8 ypg, so I’m not ranking him as one against Denver.

14. Jermichael Finley, Green Bay Packers 

Finley turned in a dud last week, but still sees a lot of targets. I don’t love him against Houston.

15. Jared Cook, Tennessee Titans

He’s scored in two of the past three games and takes on Pittsburgh.
